    here is a view of the inside

    but it is starting to fill up

    Every day I bring home a trunk load of junk and toss it in the trailer

    This is ONE TRUNK LOAD

    [​IMG]

    I put all the stuff from operating day in the trailer, including the Ultimate go Kit and Kompact KILLERWATT. I need those accessible incase they are needed.
    The windows have some sheet plastic over them now, which is OPAQUE but still lets light in so METHHEADS can't peer inside. The roof still leaks event though I took a ladder and painted the perimeter with a thick layer of white roof goop. STill a couple of spots that need more goop, but need for the rain to stop.

    This Saturday I am borrowing my brother in laws Tundra TRUCK to haul massive amounts of radios on up the hill. This will be a LONG process as I can only carry a pickup bed full at one time. There are still hundreds of boxes to be shoehorned into it. Notice the foam down around the floorline. That hopefuly will keep the WIDDERS out, or most of them. I still need to do something about the front door as ther is a big gap under it that WIDDERS can walk right in. SO once widders get a stronghold in it, it won't be safe to go into. But atleast the junk won't be at work where it is is subject to being tossed in the dumpster.

    Getting there. Try to remember to balance the load on the floor to keep one part of the trailer from being heavier than the rest, this will help in uniform settling.

    the heavy stuff will be the Heathkit TX-1 Apache, Marauder and Hallicrafters SX-28. the rest will accumulate wieght but not be too heavy

    I'm betting on the over. It won't be long there Mr. Pat till you have that space full of AR "stuff" it looks like. Are you going thru all of the boxes, taking pics of the contents and numbering cataloging the items/boxes, so you can find what you are searching for in the future? :)

    the boxes are vaguely labled to make it easier on the handlers of the ESTATE (Electrolytic caps, resistors, coils, ICs, mics, etc.)

    Sue implied that that's a trailer? Why not take it to load up on the spot?

    It is one of those construction office trailers, it wouldn't stand the load if shifted and it would shift.

    Well at least the widders would keep the meth heads out?

    Is there a plan to put any sort of wallboard on the walls, or covering on the subfloor?

    How about shelves?
